    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

Great Doctor, took care of my son and I when we had strep throat. He was kind, efficent, and the pharmacy inside the clinic on E. Superior St. was great too. The last thing I felt like doing was running to a store to have our perscriptions filled!!! Great Service, we just moved here from FL and I had no idea where to start my search in finding a doctor. I am glad to have found one I trust right away!

very nice, but..

I like DR Igwe personally. However, I have been seeing him for three years for anxiety and pain. He didn't try to figure out the problem, he would just quickly prescribe a new med and cross our fingers. I had to suggest seeing a specialist, which has actually helped. When I had suggested that to him he said to just keep taking the meds until things get worse. Also I would try to have a dialogue with him to work on a solution, but he didn't seem to be interested.

Worst physician I have ever met

He shows little affect other than irritation, doesn't seem to have much empathy, isn't willing to spend much time figuring out what is wrong with a person, to name just a few. Overall, very horrible experiences. I have heard the same from other patients!
